Shao bing in SGV?
Does anyone know where to get shao bing in SGV or LA? I am not looking for Taiwanese shao bing, but rather this kind: http://frugalcuisine.blogspot.com/200...
This shao bing has no filling. It's basically nothing but dough cooked in a barrel with hot coals burning. When it's done, the vendor will either smear chili paste or sugar on it.
You'd have to BYO chili paste, but Si Hai (four seas) in San Gabriel has it and I believe so does Huge Tree in Monterey Park. They're just plain and empty inside.
Yi Mei probably has the closest thing you are looking for.
The shao-bing at Si Hai and Huge Tree Pastry are more Taiwanese in style (i.e. thinner and more flaky); whereas Ye May will sell you a sheet of baked shao-bing more akin to Beijing/Northern style, thicker and chewier.
Also, if you don't mind green onions (or scallions) in your shao-bing, then China Islamic is another option (and, no, I am not talking about the more popular "scallion pancakes" or tsong yoiu bing 葱油饼)
